11:36 pm
show with stephen colbert"! ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: hey! welcome to "the late show,"" everybody. thank you so much. thank you so much, everybody. i am stephen colbert and i am so excited because this weekend is the kentucky derby, the one day a year when it's legal to bet on three-year-olds. last year's derby and triple crown winner, american pharoah, retirement. look at this headline.
11:37 pm
"american pharoah is already a champion at the stud life, too." that' that's right, he is-- to use a popular euphemism-- good at sex. apparently, american pharaoh breeds in the morning, the afternoon, and sometimes even at 6:00 p.m., each time with a different mare. that is a lot of awkward "trots of shame." ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) three times a day. i do not envy the jockey that has to ride him the whole time, or the guy announcing it: "and american pharaoh is comin' up from behind. and he's still coming up from behind. and he really seems to like it back there." ( laughter ) and he's letting her finish
11:38 pm
first. and-- ( laughter ) ( applause ) it's just polite. it's just nice. speaking of kentucky, k.f.c. has just released fried-chicken- flavored nail polish. it is finger lickin' possibly toxic. ( laughter ) personally, i think it's fitting to make our fingers taste like chicken, because given how fast most of us plow through k.f.c., we don't stop untill we get to the wrist. you know what else is delicious, jon batiste and stay human. say hi. ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: hey, jon, i didn't
11:39 pm
get a chance to say hi to you, shake your hand at the top of the show. >> jon: yeah, man, i miss that when we don't do that. >> stephen: do you want to do it ?o. >> jon: yeah. >> stephen: i'll meet you in the middle, meet you in the middle. ( applause ) ( cheers ) no i'm ready to do the show. you know, mother's day is coming up this weekend, or as most people put it, this weekend! ( laughter ) you're welcome, by the way. of course, finding just the right mother's day card can be difficult. but even if you find it, it didn't start that way. somebody had to write the sentiment on the card, and they don't always get it right on the first try. so tonight we're going to look at some of the early drafts of mother's day cardses in our first segment "first drafts."
11:40 pm
>> no, stupid. >> stephen: now, this what we're about to do here is a good old-fashioned talk show desk piece, meaning i'm going to hold up pictures of the mother's day cards and then they're going to have jokes on them. this really calls for somebody who help me out, and who better to help me out here at the desk for mother's day than a mom. are there moms here tonight? ( cheers and applause ) let's see, can we-- can we see? can we-- are you a mom? are you a mom right there? do you want to-- do you want to come up on stage? >> oh, gosh. >> stephen: what's your name? >> wendy coralet. >> stephen: wendy coralet, are you alone? >> yes, i. >> stephen: wow. come on up. that was fast. wow. wow, thank you very much. wendy, thank you so much for doing this. come on up here. wendy, wendy coralet, everybody.
11:41 pm
( cheers and applause ) happy mother a day, wendy. >> thank you, thank you very much. >> stephen: if it's going to be mother's day, you need a mimosa! >> yes! >> stephen: okay. and here's some scones. there you go. >> whoa! cheers. >> stephen: mmm. mmm. what we're going to do here is you're going to be my sidekick right now, okay, mom? >> all right. >> stephen: and you're going to hand me these cards as i call for them one at a time. are you ready to do this? >> yes. >> stephen: do you have any plans for mother's day yourself? >> my sisters and my mother are out here, and we're going to rock new york city. >> stephen: you are going to rock new york city. >> we are going to rock new york city, you bet. >> stephen: where are you from? >> we're from wisconsin. >> stephen: i can't tell upon i would never have guessed. where in wisconsin? >> i live in fall river,
11:42 pm
wisconsin. about 25 miles north and east of madison. >> stephen: that's good country. >> beautiful. >> stephen: that's cheese country. >> yes, it is, badgers. >> stephen: everywhere is cheese country in wisconsin. >> you're right. >> stephen: hand me the first one. in first drafts we look at first drafts perfect it became the thing you know and love. here are first drafts of mother's day cards. here's a nice one with a picture of some flowers that says, "thanks for being a great mom." but the first draft said, happy mother's day. thanks for having sex with dad. you know what, might be a nice card for dad to send, too. >> uh-huh. >> stephen: pace yourself. pace yourself, wendy. here's another one. this one says, "happy belated mother's day."
11:43 pm
but the first traft said, "sorry, i didn't remember it was mother's day. but you forgot to pick me up after band practice in 7th grade. payback's a bitch. wendy, how many kids do you have? >> i have three children. >> stephen: three children. have you ever forgotten them anywhere? >> yes. >> stephen: is it something you'd like to share with us? >> no, no. >> stephen: i'm taig that one, ready? all right. here's a card that says, "i'm so lucky you're my mom!" but the original draft had on the inside, "but stop calling before 9:00 a.m. i thought someone died." that's true. when family-- when family calls early in the morning, late at night, you think it's going to be bad news, never going to be good. what your kids' names. >> jason, and aaron. >> stephen: is aaron a boy or a girl. >> and i have three grandsons.
11:44 pm
>> stephen: get out! you have a grandson already? >> i do. it will be three soon. >> stephen: it will be three? what's your husband's name? >> patrick. >> stephen: patrick. you're doing a great job, by the way. >> thank you. >> stephen: here's one with a cute picture of a mother deer and a baby deer and it says, "to a wonderful mother." but in the original draft it said, "dad just got hit by a minivan." ( laughter ) that's terrible. that's terrible, isn't it? >> yes. >> stephen: that's why they rewrote it. >> that's right. >> stephen: these aren't last drafts. these are first drafts. how is this working out for you? >> it's good. >> stephen: cool yourself off. have a little sip right there. right there. >> okay! >> stephen: okay. ( cheers and applause ) this is our last one right now. okay, last one right now. here's one. a really nice one.
11:45 pm
it says, "happy mother's day to my beautiful wife." okay. but the first draft said, "i can't believe that judge let me marry my own mom." >> stephen: ooooh! again, again, this is why it's a first draft. >> that's right. >> stephen: no one would want to send that to anyone. >> no. >> stephen: no, they wouldn't. wendy, thank you so much for being here. >> thank you. >> stephen: do you want to give a shout-out to your own mom as long as you're up there. >> happy mother's day, mom. i love you. >> stephen: oh, she's here! >> stephen: happy mother's day mom. that's it for "first drafts" and mother's day cards. thank you, wendy. and happy mother's day to all you moms out there. take the day to focus on you and take the next three days to fix everything that happened when you weren't manning the ship. we'll be right back with lily tomlin.

( laughter ). >> stephen: really? >> yeah. i would make them pay, like, a dime or a quarter, whatever the going rate would have been. ( laughter ). >> stephen: for porch theater. >> yeah, porch theater. why didn't i call it that? >> stephen: well, it's never too late. it's never too late. >> but anyway, i gave that up when i went to college. i thought kids-- you don't make a living doing that. i was a blue-collar kid. you don't, you know, have so much fun making a living. you have to, like, do something hard. >> stephen: so what were you going to do? >> i thought i'll be a doctor.
11:53 pm
i really wanted to give to society. >> stephen: that's hard. >> but what i would have given them would have been kind of a big mess. ( laughter ). >> stephen: that's not good from a doctor. you want to be kind of organized, yeah, exactly. what made the turn? were you actually in med school? >> no, i never got into med school. i was in a microbiology class with a girl who was voted prettiest girl when i graduated high school, and she-- she was my best friend, but she could be very empirruous, very grand. >> stephen: pretty people. >> but then she could be really ordinary like susie sorority, kind of dufus. one day i was addicted to smelling xylene, which is an oily, mergent slide solvent. >> stephen: can you get high on it? can you get high on it? >> i imagine if you could get your hands on enough of it you could. it was meeted out in littley tiny heavy glass bottle s.
11:54 pm
>> stephen: if they gave you a little, i that means it was te good stuff. >> that's right. i would fill up my bottle two or three times a day. >> stephen: and you were huffing xylene. >> yes -- >> go ahead, go ahead. this is an intervention, by the way, this interview. okay? >> that would be good. anyway, i took-- i took my compass point, you know, and i was sort of inhailing xylene and throwing my compass point into a wooden lab table. >> stephen: so you were inhailing xylene and stabbing a table. okay, okay. getting ready for med school, as you do. ( laughter ). >> anyway, she turned to me and she said, "i just abhor mindless vandalism." very grand. and she said, "i'm going to do read for "the mad woman for shio." "you should come along there are some small parts. >> stephen: she was throwing some shade at you? >> she was. i forgave her because that's part of my largess.
11:55 pm
so she-- so i went over to the theater and i-- and i was too terrified. i didn't know how to audition even though i had been performing. i was the world's first performance artist. i would do a tap dance. i would do some ballet-- not sequentially because that would have been too boring. i would-- i would mix it up. i would imitate my father coming home loded. >> stephen: yeah, yeah. >> and i would cut a rope in two and restore it. you probably know how to do that. >> stephen: i don't. ( laughter ) well, well, now you're performing with jane fonda in "grace and frankie." >> yeah. >> stephen: and we have a clip here. it's you, the two of you-- you look like you're at a spa or something like that. and you're two women whose husbands have left each other to be with each other. they've come to realize their homosexual attraction to each other. >> right. >> stephen: and you were left to remake your own live.
11:56 pm
>> we were in our 70s. >> stephen: jim, let's look at that clip. >> i think i know what would cheer you up, a little gossip. >> i hate gossip. who's it about? >> about a certain long-haired beaut wesparkling eyes and a devilish wit. me, it's about me. >> let me guess. you've had another altercation in your food cohelpop. >> yes, and i've also recently been kissed. by jacob. >> he kissed you! when? >> i ran into him at the farmer's market when i was stalking him at the farmer's market. >> how was the kiss? >> my cheek is still tingling. >> stephen: i like that relationship. i like that. ( applause ). >> yeah. >> stephen: you know. you're 70 but you're like two girls talking to each other. >> well, we are. that's how women are, you know. >> stephen: you've been an adult for a while now. ( laughter ) yeah. >> well, most days. >> stephen: yeah, yeah. do you ever miss being a kid? >> yeah, gosh, i mean, when--
11:57 pm
when i was a kid, i used to talk to my stuffed animals, and now i feel like they're not even really listening. ( laughter ) >> stephen: wouldn't if be great if there was a place we could go and be a kid again. >> it would be so great if you didn't have to know what you know now. >> >> stephen: as an adult. >> if that place existed -- >> stephen: but that place does exist, lily. >> really. >> stephen: it's called my blanket fort. >> stephen: hey, lily? >> yeah? >> >> stephen: hey, i was just thinking, i bet that when you're older and you get the grown-up menu at the restaurant, the mazes are way harder. ( laughter ) >> he, stephen?
11:58 pm

( laughter ) hey, do you know what puberty is? >> stephen: i heard it's a summer camp where they make you do pushups until your voice changes. ( laughter ) >> i heard it's a pill you take that makes you need different pants. ( laughter ) >> stephen: the other day i asked my dad what "porking" means. >> what did he say? >> stephen: he said it's
11:59 pm
something not very nice that men and women do. >> my dad calls that visiting grandma. >> stephen: hey, hey, lily,. >> what? ( mumbling ) i was asking you if you could understand what i'm saying right now. no, no? >> yeah, i could understand. you were saying your dad likes to teach you how to embroider.

i drive to the hoop. i drive a racecar. i have a driver. his name is carl. but that's not what we all have in common. we talked to our doctors about treatment with xarelto®. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto® is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, taking warfarin, i had to deal with that blood testing routine. i couldn't have a healthy salad whenever i wanted. i found another way. yeah, treatment with xarelto®. hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto®
12:23 am
without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is the number one prescribed blood thinner in its class. well that calls for a round of kevin nealons. make mine an arnold palmer. same here. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®.
